My new favorite cooking show….

If you’re like me and you can’t sleep you either end up watching cooking shows or infomercials. Okay, maybe that’s just me. Of course, sometimes I watch crime TV, but I digress.

Making a Fun Fall Cake

I’ve got a boxed cake mix, and I’m not afraid to use it. I had this idea, while eating a handful of candy corn, that I should make a cake that resembles a candy corn. Am I the only one who loves candy corn? Seriously, it’s pretty close to addictive. Or, maybe that’s just me. …

What can you do? Double sick weekend.

Sometimes when it rains, it pours.  Sometimes an upper respiratory plague descends upon a household.  I ended up with 2 kids at the doctor yesterday.  One child with a sinus infection (the teen) and the other child with an upper respiratory infection (the tween).  Which means twice the coughing and twice the grumpy kid issues …

For goodness sake, I made a Homemade Foreo!

I made an Oreo like cookie. Honestly. What’s better than a homemade Oreo cookie? An over-sized, soft, chewy Oreo cookie…and a foot rub, but the foot rub is totally optional. 😉 It does not taste exactly like a Oreo, but it’s super good. I decided to make the cookies soft and chewy instead of crisp. …
